Message from Saliya Pieris, Bar Association of Sri Lanka

Several lawyers have informed me of an attack on protestors at the Galle Face near the Presidential Secretariat. Whilst the details are sketchy, I am also told that several people including Nuwan Bopege AAL have been arrested. I am also been told of people having been assaulted. The authorities must ensure the safety of everyone and their whereabouts must be made known. I have tried to contact the IGP and also messaged the Army Commander. Unnecessary use of brute force will not help this country and its international image.
